    Phoronix: XWayland Receive An EGL-Based GLX Provider, Helping Various Games On Linux

    A notable improvement was merged into the "xserver" Git tree for the eventual X.Org Server 1.21 release that will improve the support for various Linux games relying on XWayland for running under a Wayland compositor...

    The word you are looking for - drop your "I know what everyone has to do" tone. Grow up yourself.

    Debian has gnome3 as default too. AS people need a guide and have less own sense. That is why gnome3 is the default desktop in many distributions. Distributions maintainers are happy when IBM is a guide and users are happy when the distribution is a guide. AS people live in a bubble out of the reality.

    This line should be very clear. The option to avoid Xwayland will be going away. If x.org server loses the means to load DRI driver means it no longer can function stand alone.
    It doesn’t mean that at all though. It just means the X server uses EGL (as it already does for glamor) instead of the Mesa DRI driver ABI for the GLX backend support. This will work fine with Xorg as well.

    Video games are for children and among the least important factors to consider. You might be shocked to know that many people use their computers for work and other productive things.

    Check out this creep's youtube channel. He calls himself a gamer but he plays 15 year old games at 30fps on an RX460.

    I think the main rough edge on Wayland will be adaptive sync support. I'm planning to buy 2.5K / 144Hz FreeSync monitor once Navi cards will come out (since they would be able to handle that well), and unless Wayland/XWayalnd use case will support it, I'll be stuck with Xorg.
    As far as I know first AMD needs to support freesync as well on Wayland like they did with the x11 driver, which is still open. Not sure if this really needs adjustments in kwin. I do have a freesync capable 4k screen and a quite expensive AMD card, but I'm not switching back to ancient technology just for this feature, there are other Wayland only features like red shift that my eyes value more in the evening.

    Nothing. Why would you even bother with it? If you want Wayland, you'd need AMD or Intel. That has been clear for years already.
